Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moi
This is the second linzer cookie I have made recently. I think rolled and filled cookies are the essence of the holiday season. I let my husband choose the filling. Dorie had chocolate or jam options. We went with traditional raspberry filling. These cookies have the makings of everything that I love; chocolate, almonds and jam. But despite all their goodness they were not a big hit with the family. These have an interesting spice profile; with cinnamon, allspice, black pepper and cloves. Maybe it was one or a combination that didn’t work for us.
I thought I would share how I dusted my cookies. Dorie has you dusting after the sandwich cookies are together. I look forward to trying Dorie’s classic linzer cookies next time.

We didn't love these either. I was expecting them to be a lot more rich than they actually were.
They weren't my favourites either but others certainly enjoyed them (and like you, I dusted the tops with sugar before assembly.
Hi Diane, looks like everyone agrees that these were just ok. Yours are pretty though.
